Nashville Predators president of hockey operations and general manager David Poile was busy today completing two important trades just days before the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.
First, he sent Dan Hamhuis to the Philadelphia Flyers and re-acquired Ryan Parent in return. Then he would ship team captain Jason Arnott to the New Jersey Devils for Matt Halischuk. Nashville received two 2011 draft picks as a result of the two deals.
Predators radio play-by-play announcer Tom Callahan spoke with Poile to provide some insight as to why he made the trades.
